This kete looks at some of the important documents, policies, and strategies that have influenced the direction we have taken on our journey toward the goal of Māori enjoying educational success as Māori.
Kia ora. In this section of the site, you can find practical information and resources to support Māori learners. All the resources are available from the Ministry of Education and New Zealand education sector sites.
We have organised the content collections using a “layers of influence” approach. These “layers of influence” shape the conditions in which Māori learn and can have an impact on learners enjoying and achieving educational success as Māori. The layers are: the Crown, iwi, whānau, school leaders, teachers and students.
Through its government representatives – the Minister and Ministry of Education – the Crown sets the direction for accelerating the success of Māori learners at every level of the education system.
Its policies are informed by research carried out in Aotearoa New Zealand, as well as international research on improving outcomes for indigenous learners. This research then informs the development of the strategic plans, resources, professional learning and development (PLD) and associated tools that support the system to achieve its goals for Māori learners.
This layer provides a visual timeline – and associated kete and galleries – showcasing some of the policies and responses that have contributed to the building of our knowledge today. These also form the basis for work currently under way and being planned for the future.
